The art behind the twigs says a lot of stories and this certainly has been something that I have noticed. The artist behind the exercising of the twigs I have to say you re very creative. Godbless

I lament its demise! The wife and I stumbled across this while we were wandering around Salem. The signs talked about it being temporary and that it had lasted longer than it was suppose to! A nice memory of Salem!

No longer there. Exhibit was there for a few years but due to time and the elements it is no longer there.

Don't bother coming to Salem if this is what you wanna see. A sign saying due to weather related damage and safety issues it had to be taken down. Disappointed!

Not really sure what to make of this. I wouldn't drive for hours to see this. But you cant help but stop and stare as you walk by. It is very interesting and must have taken an extremely long time to do. Does fit perfectly...More
